About Our Troop
Troop 176 has been active since 1921. We meet weekly on Wednesday evenings and have lots of activities throughout the year. During the past year, we have had camping trips to Assateague Island and along the Appalachian trail, a canoe trip on the Delaware River, a bike trip, a ski trip and a great week at Resica Falls Summer Camp.
Troop 176 is a great group. We look out for each other, and everyone else. We learn about knots, camping, other survival skills, and the importance of community service. The camping trips are really fun.
Our Troop's first aid team won the council first aid competition for 2013.
We are particularly proud of the 35 Scouts from Troop 176 who have achieved the rank of Eagle since 2000. Congratulations to Matt, our latest Eagle Scout.
Meetings: Wednesdays, 7:30-9:00pm
